Pietro Aretino was a 16th-century Italian author known for being one of the most influential writers of his era, much in part to his treatises critical of powerful nobles. Author Benigne Dujardin, better known by his pseudonym Boispreaux, wrote what is considered the first and best biography of the life of Pierre Aretin. Dujardin was convinced to discuss the inappropriateness of the illicit content of Aretins writings.
